  1. I have a lot of videos like this in stock, but I'm afraid of causing heart attacks.
  2. I thought exactly the same, but if the comments are deactivated it is probably not for nothing ...
  3. I came across this video. I don't know if it has already been published here but in any case it's catastrophic ... the problem is that it's more common than you think ... video that hurts
  4. there is no real way to tell if it is good or not. Unless you really feel an unusual friction. but this craftsman has a good experience, which is a little reassuring
  5. The fact that it is damaged the blade shows a great level of amateurism, in addition to the damage on the blade the shirazaya can be bad, and could with the time damage the blade while using it.
  6. Welcome, the person who did the shirasaya was "amateur", am I wrong?
  7. As I build a custom showcase I am confronted with all these problems. And it's not as easy as it seems.
  8. Again, beyond skill, they do not have access to quality stones. the importance of stones, and their influence on the quality of polishing, should not be underestimated.
  9. the problem with all this is that a European polisher, even the most talented, with 30 years of training with a Japanese master, will not be able to do an optimal job if he does not have access to the right stone. and have known that good stones are increasingly rare, and that even Japanese polishers are starting to have difficulty finding them. Talent without the material is useless
  10. There is a certain Reynold Pasquette in Normandy who practices polishing, but I do not know if he is competent in this field. On the other hand it beautifully restores the armor
  11. strongly that Japan passes above certain beliefs, because they have an incredible archaeological and historical reservoir, which will eventually disappear. For us, student of nihonto, it is the possibility of increasing the subjects of study for certain distant period, whose works are rarer. thanks for the info, I'll try to do a study on it. What are the sites already searched, what was found on these sites. what are the promising sites which remain and what is the potential of discovery in these sites. I may be sent emails to museums and universities in Japan for that.
  12. ah no I don't know, it is easily found? in any case from what I see it looks very interesting, even if there is always the barrier of the language of Japanese ... the more I study, the more I want to learn, the more I get says that learning Japanese becomes "compulsory" because not knowing this language becomes a handicap. To come back to the subject, do you think that all that needs to be discovered has been discovered, or there may still be great discoveries in this area? Maybe I'm wrong and I'm counting on you to correct me, but I have the impression that the Japanese have a very specific archelogical culture. To give an example, in Europe historical sites have been excavated enormously, each restoration of a site almost necessarily involves an excavation. So that in Japan, once again I have the impression that the golden age of archeology and in front of them.
  13. hello gentlemen I'm looking for info / articles / pictures on old nihonto found in mounds of earth during excavations, some have been restored I think? there isn't a lot of info on the net regarding these blades and it's digs.
